    My boyfriend took me here for my 20th birthday! I have been to Elways, as well as Del Frisco's and think Shanahans is very comparable to Del Frisco's! The service was great, the food was even better. The calamari is an excellent starter, the filet & the cowboy are great entrees.

    I took my wife for our anniversary, and Shanahan's was perfect for the occasion. Yet this is not a stuffy old steak house. Good food and great atmosphere. Jeans were ok.

    You can always count on Shanahan's for great, consistent food and service. They have a superior wine list and I always appreciate the recommendations of the sommeliers - spot on! We had a great evening recently celebrating my birthday. The staff was so helpful and friendly. It was truly appreciated.

    Had another great meal at Shanahan's with some friends. My friend ordered the filet as Medium and it came as Medium Rare. The thickness of the cut needs to be taken into account, when cooking this cut of meat. For this reason, I ordered mine Medium Well and it came out perfect (for me). The waitress disappeared after the meal was brought to the table and we needed to send the steak back for more cooking. When it came back, it looked well done (almost like a piece charcoal)--overdone. Overall, this was a good meal.

    Wanted to celebrate a special event in a special way and Shanahan's didn't disappoint. From honoring the reservation on time to excellent service and out of the world food everything was great. The food was amazing. I know it is expensive, but they made it worth it by the preparation and presentation. There was nothing about which I could complain.

    Our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our celebratory dinner on a busy Saturday evening. The oysters were ice cold (perfect!) and were even loosened from the shell for easy removal. Our filets were cooked perfectly and arrived on a scorching hot plate so that your steak was warm while you ate it. Side dishes were also piping hot and delicious. For the birthday girl, they provided a complimentary HUGE slice of chocolate cake that was big enough for to share. We found it odd that so many diners were "down dressed" in shorts with untucked shirts etc. Unfortunately, we felt rushed, as if they wanted to flip the table. Lobby area was so crowded when we left and people would not move to allow us out; maybe they need to perform crowd control.

    Before eating at Shanahan's I had never heard of a bone-in filet but was delighted to try something new. It was perfectly cooked (though I expected as much) and the flavor was outstanding. The waiter learned it was our anniversary and sprinkled rose petals on our table and gifted us with a large slice of chocolate cake. What a wonderful way to make us feel welcome. We'll definitely be back!

    When reservation made on open table, I shared that we were celebrating my sister and brother-in-law's 40th anniversary. We were welcomed into a booth that was sprinkled with red rose petals. After dinner, our waiter Dean brought out an anniversary card with personalized note along with a dessert.

    As loyal patrons we've recently observed that quality is decreasing and prices are increasing. When purchasing a $45 to $50 + steak, one expects a thimble full of peppercorn sauce might be complimentary, however at Shanahans the cost is $4. Their "table sized" side dishes have become individual portions, yet the servers go around the table dishing out basically teaspoon sized samples to maintain the illusion. Their expectation is obviously to sell more $12-$14 sides/salads. We also noticed that during peak times, preparation quality of the food is diminished. Shanahans has been one of our favorites since opening but it appears that formerly uncompromising quality has given way to ever higher profit demand

    The steaks at Shanahan's Steakhouse will melt in your mouth like nothing you've ever tasted. I don't know how they can possibly make them so much better than anyone else, but the quality elsewhere is not even close. At least once in your life, treat yourself to a visit to Shanahan's. While winning 2 Super Bowls with the Denver Broncos, Mike Shanahan published a book on leadership. In it, he has a chapter titled "Detailing," where he talks about the importance of why details matter. At Shanahan's Steakhouse, no detail is overlooked. In fact, the steaks at Shanahan's are so good that even the Chick-fil-a "eat more chicken" cows would approve of them! Enjoy!

    The food was incredible and the service was even better. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the wines and the food. He was perfect for being at such a fancy restaurant for the first time. He guided us through the menu, making suggestions and had a wonderful personality. He made our dining experience better than I could ever imagine. It is expensive but worth it for a very special occasion. I will never forget the night.

    Jacob, our server, was very helpful in making menu selections, and his service was outstanding. The 22oz bone in ribeye was amazing. It was cooked perfectly, and was the best tasting steak I've ever eaten. I also highly recommend the clover honey cheese cake. Shanahan's is elegant, but not as intimate as Brooke's or Flemmings.

    Me and my husband went for my birthday and granted we make fairly good money but to spend it at a place that makes you feel like your ordering off the special menu they bring out the salad that was mediocare at best and the filet was big enough for me but was ok slightly tough for a tenderloin the service of the sides was rushed by the servers, I guess I expected more for the price I think next time I will spend my $120.00 making my own meal at home.
